, that stretch of highway has reopened today. let's bring in chad myers to see how long the rain's going to be around. >> well, it's over. what you see is what you get. probably a good half inch in most of the areas that had the fire, 10,000 acres. not just one fire in one big circle. it has spread to many different spots, but as the rain came through last night, it's well south. and there you go. there's the rain. right over that fire area in orlando or east of orlando. we still have our affiliates out and about. wxtv is live there showing you what was left yesterday. clearly some type of mobile vehicle. propane tank did not explode there. a shocking sight to think of how hot that was. hopefully those were empty, but what i've noticed from the live shots and i've seen them for about 15 or 20 minutes, there's not as much smoke today. the texas or florida department is only saying 10% in the way of containment, but i believe there's probably more than 10. that's because what the fire did yesterday, what the rain did. there was a lot of rain in other places that didn't need it. every count

's go to cnn's meteorologist chad myers in atlanta. welcome, chad. >>> i want to go through all this happened. it's a thrust-fault earthquake. there's japan. there's the japan trench. go look at the atlas, you can find it. there is a pacific plate that goes under the country of japan, and right there at that thrust fault, it's going to -- for many years get pushed down slowly, and then all of a sudden yesterday, it pops up. it's because this plate moves in one direction. the other plate stays in the same spot. all of a sudden, it can't hold back any longer, and it thrusts up, and with that thrust it pushes the water above it up into the sky. and it makes a bubble. it makes a giant splash. the splash spreads out, becomes a tsunami. so originally they felt the shaking, that was the shaking of the ground. but then literally five to ten minutes later, the bubble of water crashed on shore and did much more damage than the earthquake itself. >> amazing to me. it brings back memories. i remember studying this in science as we all did in high school at some point. you don't think it's e

in cnn's severe weather expert, chad myers, our meteorologist. chad, i'm getting a lot of questions from viewers around the world, wanting to know this 8.9 magnitude earthquake, now almost two days ago, that it had an impact on the axis of the earth. tell us what's going on here. >> when the earth moved, literally, the crust of the plates of the earth moved, so did the landmasses that they're attached to. here's japan, here, this would be -- it's actually the north america plate -- i know that doesn't make any sense, because you're thinking, that's not north america. but the pacific plate is the one that was going under japan. japan sits on the north america plate and the plate is behind it. as the pressures were building up, that pacific plate is pushing into japan and going under japan, it's called subducting. so this subduction zone here is going under. the part that is japan here that this plays on begins to curl in, it begins to get stresses on it. go ahead and hit play. the stresses here get pushed in, pushed in, pushed in, and all of a sudden, at the very last minute right before

they're far below what any of is experience day to day. chad myers is here to talk me through this. how concerned should those around the fukushima area, how concerned should they be? and what about us? isms the radiation in the water, and i've gone to the pdf that came out of tepco, the company. we're focused on this iodine-131, it's three times, four times what it should be, my goodness, but there are other isotopes. iodine is eight days. it will go away. it's a beta emitter it will go away. there are cesium products with a life of 30 years, and the half life -- this isn't going to be half as strong for 30 years, and then another half as strong in 60 years and so on and so on. there are mo isotops that we should be focusing on that are very, very bad. these isotopes will settle into the subsurface and by covered up by the plankton and the fish stuff and by fish scales, and eventually -- >> it will mott move? >> it will not. as long as you don't move it, you're okay. that's no help. it's still there, but because its under water, it won't be emitting gamma-rays, it can be okay until oth

is embedded with the rescue team. i want to talk about the plant, the nuclear plant this is a big issue. chad has been following this for us. all around the world people are curious as to how these nuclear reactors work. >> there are reactors literally everywhere. one pound of fuel in a nuclear submarine or an aircraft carrier, it is equal to about 1 million gallons of gasoline. >> this is why it's so popular. >> that's how amazing this little cube of one pound of uranium is. >> but that tells you how much energy is stored in there. >> it is what boils the steam into pressure, that pressures the turbines that makes the power. you could put a giant bowl of coal down here and run it forever, but this control rod, fuel rod, steam line makes an awful lot of power in a small space. so let's go the pressure vessel, the control rods, the fuel rods. zoom right in. the fuel rods made of uranium 235 go into the water here. the water steams and makes a lot of pressure. when you want to cool down your pressure, cool it down, you put the control robs that absorb some of the neutrons that go around, it slo
